Service
Association for Women in Mathematics
  • Treasurer for the 2020-2021 academic year
  • Co-organized a career panel for graduate students consisting of six female mathematicians in varying fields.
  • Co-organized a career preparation seminar where faculty in the math department gave advice and tips on how succeed in the job application process

Directed Reading Program

DRP mentor

  • worked undergraduate students in semester-long independent reading projects.

DRP organizing committee.

  • redefined the standards for both undergraduate and gradate student participation. The new standards were successful in increasing the total number of participants.
  • Paired graduate students and undergraduate students based on the areas of expertise of the graduate students and the areas of interest of the undergraduates.
